A NEW NOIR MASTERPIECE BY THE AUTHOR
OF THE CLASSIC 1953 BESTSELLER ANYONE’S MY NAME
Fifteen years ago, teenager Alan Benning jogged off a beach—and into a nightmare. Because what awaited him in the Cape Cod woods was an unspeakable temptation, a moment of panic, and a brutal memory that would haunt him for the rest of his life.
Now a successful lawyer, Alan finds himself drawn back to the scene of the crime, desperate to learn the truth about what happened on that long-ago summer day. But even as he grapples with his own dark secrets, he finds himself hounded by a shadowy adversary—and by the forces of justice, drawing their net around him tighter by the day...
